According to Everton Lira, store manager of the new neighborhood market, a few dozen applicants have already applied for several full-time and part-time positions.
“They’re very excited about us coming in,” said Lira.
Lira also added that the he and his team have received positive feedback about the new neighborhood market.
“We’re here to listen to our customers, what they need and serve them even better,” Lira
Although Walmart began the neighborhood market format in 1998, the new store will be the first of its kind in Turlock.
The market will be open 24 hours a day and will include a variety of groceries along with a fully equipped pharmacy.
“Our main focus is grocery,” said Lira. “The difference is that you're walking into a grocery store with Walmart prices and Walmart customer service.”
The new neighborhood market will be located at the site of the previous Mervyn's store in Turlock and hired employees are set to begin working by July.
